Not only was this move distracting and off-putting, but it totally undermined the point of the competition. These are supposed to be discovered talents, not established stars doing duet performances, and that’s exactly what this move made them seem like.

The band’s latest long player, Screaming Bloody Murder, is the closest the band has come to the dreaded “A” word, and it doesn’t take long into Screaming Bloody Murder to notice the inclination towards adulthood – 2:45 into opener “Reason to Believe” to be precise.
